YM Lab 6

The YM Lab 6, which is located at Peki- Avetile in the Volta region, comprises a 40 seater fully furnished ICT centre, a makerspace for 3D Printing, Virtual Reality, Augmented Reality and Robotics to advance the teaching and learning of ICT. The facility also has a 40-seater conference room for workshops, seminars, and meetings. The facility was dedicated on Tuesday November 17, 2020.

The selection of Peki- Avetile in the Volta Region was largely influenced by Mr. Humphrey Ayim-Darke, Vice President of Association of Ghana Industries. The facility intends to serve 10 to 15 schools in the community, while providing avenues for practical ICT education to improve students’ standard of learning.

Sustainability Plan

The YM Labs 6 has been equipped with a sustainable plan to ensure they are active and functional. Due to the lack of constant electricity and the expenses it comes with, the lab is powered by solar energy. This is to ensure the center does not become ineffective due to their inability to pay utility bills. It is also meant to prevent a Center Manager from charging the students which will ultimately prevent them from using the facility. 

The Conference room addition is also a strategic plan to ensure the facility has avenues for conferencing to generate income to run independently in the years to come.

The Dedication Event

Speaking at the dedication ceremony, community leaders expressed their gratitude for the provision of these lab in their community. They also acknowledged the impact the lab will drive in the lives of the students and people in the community. They also acknowledged that students can spend their leisure time at the labs instead of engaging in unproductive activities.

The President and Executive Director of  HAF, Dr. Deborah Rose and Mr. Japhet Aryiku urged the community to ensure that they make good use of the facilities. She encouraged the community to give the students unlimited access to the facilities and ensure that the usage of the lab reflects in their lives.
